I’ve always been low-fi when it comes to beauty and skincare, I’ve never been a fan of foundation (too thick!) and have always struggled to master anything more than a fail-safe BB-Cream, mascara, eye liner combo on a night out. After having babies this no fuss approach carried me through those early days of no sleep, confusion with my new life (who is this person with a little person in tow?) and being nonplussed with going out too much. But then it happened. Fine lines began to appear around my eyes, sun spots became more apparent and I began to wish I’d listened to all that wise advice about being sun smart and always wearing SPF, which is now one of my non-negotiables.
I began to listen to beauty podcasts and read anti-ageing beauty articles with fresh eyes. I devoured Instagram posts and Youtube videos on how to up your skincare routine, without too much fuss of course.
And then I discovered sheet masks.
I’m not saying they were the answer to and wrinkles, I still have those, and am learning to love them. What I am saying is sheet masks are a revelation in understanding just how much hydration my skin was lacking. They also put new meaning to self-care and having a Friday night in.
Which is where Garnier’s new Ampoule Face Sheet Mask range comes in. It features their most minimal packaging yet, and contain their highest concentration of actives yet. The beauty of these masks is that because they are packaged with derm actives they are designed to be used in just 5 minutes, meaning you can easily incorporate them into your everyday skincare routine or as a way to prep your skin before a busy day.
